Desert Hearts will once again gather their loyal followers in the SoCal highlands to bask in an extended 100 hours of nonstop House, Techno, and Love at their Three Year Anniversary on November 5th-9th. As visionaries within the alternative festival movement and purveyors of a unique 4/4 sound, DesertHearts has curated a wide reaching exposé of industry leading talent for their biggest event yet.
The likes of Claude VonStroke, J.Phlip, Doc Martin, Andreas Henneberg, Marc Houle, Kate Simko, Olivier Giacomotto, jozif, Mark Henning, Nitin, Sabo, Goldcap, David Scuba, Tara Brooks, Dance Spirit and more will join the infamous Desert Hearts Crew DJs Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, Porkchop, and Deep Jesus.
Emerging from the ethos of Burning Man while channeling the global sound of House and Techno, Desert Hearts has reimagined the festival vibe, paving the way for the micro-gathering movement currently sweeping the nation. It is this imaginative yet radically grounded spirit that has earned them the praise of media outlets like Billboard and The Wall Street Journal to Forbes and VICE.
2015 has seen great strides for Desert Hearts with a slew of releases from their newly minted Desert Hearts Records, which has been established as a free label. They have also launched their urban crusade, City Hearts, and its “Summer of Love Tour” has seen the crew touching down and selling out iconic venues in Brooklyn, Toronto, San Francisco, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Diego, with more dates on the horizon.
The reaction to the City Hearts tour and the label show that Desert Hearts is no regional phenomenon, and that their driving principles of House, Techno, and Love are capturing hearts and minds from coast to coast. We Are All DesertHearts.
